Instructions

Bungee running involves participants running as
far as they can whilst connected to an elastic
rope, which is anchored to a fixed point. The
normal scenario involves either muddy ground or
tarpaulins covered in soapy water to make the
progress more difficult. Participants try to place
markers at the furthest extension of the bungee
rope. Variations involve balloon bursting en route
and the wearing of fancy dress.
